So if someone is anti-immigration because they do not want their country to change, that is just plain old conservatism.
No, that is a texbook example of xenophobia. In politics, conservatism means that one is content with the current laws and does not advocate reforms.
You don't. If you watch the video (click on the "here" link at the end of the summary) he makes it clear that he's comparing time to get to an end result. Not hardware. The complete package. Hardware + software.
He's not comparing hardware and software to get an end result. He's comparing hardware and software to get two different end results (running two different programs, arbitrarily chosen). Hence the comparison does not make any sense whatsoever. Different programs take different time to run on different computers and you can't infer anything from that.
He then goes further on, providing an explanation (that the macbook pro is faster because it is more "optimized") without any proof (he didn't actually indicate what optimization is there on the mac and isn't there on the pc) for a fact that he didn't measure in the first place (that the macbook pro is faster).
This video makes as much sense as buying a 2016 macbook pro.
And let's be honest, the US never spent less on welfare because they needed the money to patrol Greenland. They have done so because welfare programs aren't high on the list of priorities of the American electorate.
I'll concede that the "slimmer" claim is realistic, given that two connectors take less space than one. But in a time when phones are getting larger and larger, I don't think this is going to solve anyone's problem.
The claim that devices will be "smarter", instead, can be scary. USB devices can be flaky at times because of the complexity of the protocol. On top on that, I've had some mixed experiences with USB-audio class devices in particular. And if the analog audio option of this new connector isn't mandatory, we'll end up buying earphones that sometimes work, sometimes don't, depending on an invisible capability of the device. Not to mention that application software can prevent the use of the analog outputs for DRM reasons, as it happens today for the video outputs.
(I'm not saying this to deny the facts that the Jews have a history of continued persecution and that the state of Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.)
